Anthrax release vocal teaser

Anthrax have released a studio teaser video featuring a hint of Joey Belladonna’s lead vocals on their upcoming album.

They’re at work on the follow-up to 2011’s Worship Music, which is expected during the summer. It’s being produced by Jay Ruston.

In the clip Belladonna says: “Really not much more to it than just get in there and start hammering away at each song. Stay tuned!”

Drummer Charlie Benante recently told how he got a head-start on writing duties while he was sidelined with a hand injury, saying: “These ideas would come out of me and I don’t even know where they came from. Before I knew what was going on I had huge stack of riffs. It was a great way to work.”

Earlier this week guitarist Scott Ian reflected that, although the modern music industry faces serious problems, there were plenty of issues to be dealt with when Anthrax were starting up. He said: “I can’t say it was great in the 80s – it’s never been populated by like-minded individuals.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
